|Comment / History:-
Kathy was the first and only female DJ on Radio kaleidoscope during the 60’s. At the age of 17 Kathy’s shows and wide cross section of music appealed to a whole range of audiences.Kathy provided her pre-recorded shows anonymously through Buster to Radio Kaleidoscope.
Security measures to protect the stations DJ identities were so good in the early years that Kathy and other Radio Kaleidoscope team members walked passed each other for over 25 years despite frequenting the exact same venues!!
Steve T & Kathy finally met again after 44 years, the rendezvous occurred at George Osborne’s place in the Old town at Leigh-on-sea, 28July14. The same day the Ross Revenge (Radio Caroline) sailed passed en-route to an unknown destination.
